  • Tros of Samothrace

    Amazon popped this up as something I might like.

    Usually I don't look at their recommendations - but this seems to be apparently quite well regarded. I quite like historical fiction, especially that with a pulp flavor - just wondering if anyone has come across this to recommend it.
    Batman: It's a low neighborhood, full of rumpots. They're used to curious sights, which they attribute to alcoholic delusions.

    Robin: Gosh, drink is sure a filthy thing, isn't it? I'd rather be dead than unable to trust my own eyes!

    First I've heard of it (but that's not saying much). It's on my wish list.
    Thanks!

      Apparently it has similarities to Robert E Howard, albeit with a more British flavor.

        I'm about to start reading this in the old four vol. Avon pbk edn, as it happens (the last one due to arrive from ebay this week). Looks good - will keep you posted. I'm expecting something a little different from REH due to Mundy's Theosophical interests.
